STEAMCREAM Review: Perfect for the Holidays!

Tomorrow is the first night of Hanukkah, and Christmas is also quickly approaching.  It's that time of year to start stocking up on gifts, and that's where STEAMCREAM comes in.  This cruelty-free, natural cream for the face and body is the perfect gift for the conscious consumer!

STEAMCREAM was fairly new to me prior to this review, as it was not readily available in the US. until recently.  It's an all-in-one vegan moisturizer that's handmade in the UK and Japan.  It's called "STEAMCREAM" because they use a unique steaming process that creates an effective, lightweight emulsion that is instantly absorbed by the skin.  This process fuses the ingredients together instantly, meaning longer-lasting hydration than standard creams.

Those ingredients include an oatmeal infusion, lavender essential oil, orange flower water, chamomile blue essential oil, organic jojoba oil, and a few more natural additions (you can view the entire list here).  They all combine to make a beautifully-scented product: to me it's light and herbal, and very soothing.

Another fun thing about STEAMCREAM, aside from its wonderful ingredients, is that its packaged in all kinds of beautiful, eco-friendly tins!  I chose to review the "Noir" tin because it reminded me of a snowflake.  They're currently stocked with plenty of holiday-themed tins, and have many more to suit a bevy of interests.  Some of my favorites from their design gallery are the Chiyoneko and Hibou (both of which are unfortunately sold out).

I've been using my STEAMCREAM on my face and body, and I'm absolutely in love with it!  My favorite thing about its performance is that it's so incredibly light: it goes on silky-smooth and feels like nothing at all on my face, but it definitely moisturizes very well.  A little bit goes a long way, so I think this tin will last me at least a few months.  When I run out, though, I will definitely be purchasing more in the future.  It ships from the UK, but they offer free worldwide shipping.  My cream arrived within a week, so I consider that pretty quick for international shipping.

Bottom Line: I am so impressed with STEAMCREAM!  It hydrates phenomenally well, it smells great, it's cruelty-free and vegan, and it's gentle on my sensitive skin.  Pick some up for you or your loved ones for the holidays, I'm sure you'll all love it!
